Consortium Agreement
This is binding agreement between eligible schools which enables you to receive various types of aid from William Paterson University while being enrolled as a visiting student at another school. WPU is considered your home school and the visiting school is referred to as the host school. It is possible to receive financial aid as long as certain requirements are met. You cannot receive financial aid at both institutions for the same courses. 

Family Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA) allows students to authorize the release of their academic, financial aid, student account and/or disciplinary records to a third party (i.e. parents, grandparents, etc.) by completing the FERPA form on-line.  You may adjust access to the respective records at any time by logging into WP Connect. These permissions will remain active until your anticipated date of graduation.
